There is a wide spectrum of benign, non-cystic scrotal lesions that show characteristic histo-morphology and natural history.While sonography is the preferred modality for the diagnosis of both testicular and extratesticular masses, MRI is used as a problem-solving modality when sonographic findings are inconclusive. This article reviews the cross-sectional imaging features of benign, non-cystic, intra- and extratesticular lesions. Definitive diagnosis of benign scrotal lesionsmay lead to conservativemanagement including testicular preserving surgery.
